Recap: Suman tells Shravan that Nanu wants her to get married. Shravan is broken but hide his feelings
(After a week- Family was back from Delhi)
Nanu: Suman beta yeh dekho yeh mera dost ka natin Raj hai. Tum un saab se mili thi jaab Priya zinda the. Mai mere dost se baat ki, aur uske parivaar ko tum bohat pasad aye. *Suman was shocked* Mai chahtihu tum use millo, akela. Din badal gayahai, ab tum aur Raj raji ho gae toh baat pakki sahungi.
Suman: Nanu par….
Nanu: Agar lakha pasad nahi aaye toh koi baat nahi. Ami bas chahtihu tum use ekbar dekhlo. Agar tumhe ladka me kuch bhi kami dekhi, toh eh rishta nahi hoga. Thik hai beta?
Suman nodded. Her eyes were filled with tears. Of course that Raj won’t be Shravan, despite of however well educated, good looking, organized and loving he would be. She kept her fingers crossed so that she would find a tiny little reason to reject this proposal.
Nanu: Yeh woh restaurant ta pata hai jaha woh tumhe milne aayegi. Aj raat 9 baje.
Suman: Nanu mai use pachanungi kaise?
Nanu: Raj tumhari photo dekha hai, woh tumhe pahchaanege.
Shravan was playing with his rubrics cube. It wasn’t a friendly game this time; he moved each small cube very aggressively yet was unable to solve the puzzle. It stated his mind. He had no answers to his own questions. What is his feeling for Sumo? Why did he never speak to her about their real relationship? It wasn’t just friendship. If it was then he wouldn’t have been so affected with the news of Sumo’s marriage. What if she finds a good guy and gets married? No. He can’t even imagine a day without seeing her. Oh! It reminded him, he didn’t see her since last week. Actually her words abt the marriage left him so speechless that he didn’t dare facing her.
Unconsciously, Shravan took his phone and dialled Suman’s no.
On the phone-
Suman: Hello Shravan?
Shravan was still on the ocean of his questions.
Shravan didn’t even realize he called Sumo
Suman: Shravan? Shravan? SHRAVAAAAN?
Finally coming back to sense Shravan realized he called Suman.
Shravan: Oh Sumo
Suman: Kya Sumo? Kaha the?
Shravan: Aj office nahi tha, so ghar par
Suman: Budhu maine puchi tum mujhe call karke kaha gum hogaya?
Suman: Kya woh? Waise call kyu kiya?
Shravan: Dost hu, haq hai. (took a pause and started thinking of the word “dost”)
Suman: Okayyyy. But kuch kahna hai?
Shravan: Ummm nahi…
Suman: Yaar toh baad mei baad karu. Thoda busy hu. Nanu ne bola koi Raj ko milne janeke liye.
Shravan *shocked*: Kya?? Kon Raj?
Suman: Nanu ka koi dost hai. Uska nati.
Shravan: Toh tum kyu use dekhne jaogi?
Suman: To fir ladke ko na milkar hi shaadi ke liye haa kahdu?
Shravan *raising his tone*: Shaaaaaadi!!!! Sumo tum woh Raj se shadi karne wali ho? U don’t even know him or his family!!! Aise kaise?
Suman: Ab dekhne jaungi tabhi toh janpaungi. Anyways mujhe der horahi hai. Taiyaar bhi hona hai so…
Shravan: Wait? U will get ready? He ISN’T so special that u need so much makeup. Aur normal ek hi-hello hai. Koi party sharty nahi
Suman: Hi-Hello NAHI. It’s like a DATE with my FIANCE.
Shravan was completely shocked. “Fiancé” What was it? Is she really marrying that Raj?
SHravan *soft and disappointed*: Fiance? Shadi pakki? Aur tumne bataya bhi nahi
Suman: Nanu ko pasand hai so I guess I’ll say yes.
Shravan: NOOOOOOOOOO way! U will live with tht guy nanu won’t. Look Sumo if u don’t like him, mujhe kahna, mai nanu se baat kadungi. Aur pasand aye toh…….*takes a deep breath* mujhe batana.
Suman: Okay aab phone rakhu? Bye…
Shravan was completely shocked. What if Sumo likes him? That guy can no way reject her. Even no one can reject her. She is diamond and everyone wants one. That means Sumo will marry Raj? And will Raj accept their friendship? Will Raj allow her to talk and meet him every day? He can’t stay without talking or fighting with her. Wait…She is Sumo. She won’t care abt a stranger called R A J ‘s permission to talk to her best friend. But wht if she also turns into a traditional wife nd do all those crazy things like a wedded woman? *Crack* Shravan got out of his thoughts and realized, he ws being so harsh with the rubrics cube that he broke the large 3×3 cube into 27 small cubes.
-Indian Accent (Restaurant) 9 p.m.-
Suman was standing outside near the main entrance. Her hair was done into a tight bun. Some baby hairs crawled down from the back of ear which were perfectly curled like 90s models. She narrowed her eyes with thick eye liner and little touch of mascara. Her lips, stain-free as usual, still the unspoiled shade of natural red. Her cheeks, little red…..she wasn’t blushing…she applied a lot of make up to cover her pale ones. Her dress…(Imagine her wearing the same anarkani she was wearing in preetibhoj)
Suman to herself: Sumo tu ek idiot hai. Aab us Raj ko kaise dhundegi? Shravan toh uth jaisa lamba tha, so it was easy. Ub is Raj koh na mai khabi dekha hai, nahi uske bademe kuch jantehun. Aab kya karu?
Suddenly she felt a tap on her shoulder and involuntarily, she turned around just to see the short guy. He was tall. Like 5”11 but after spending so many years with a lambu, anyone less than 6”4 sounded short to her. His eyes were covered thick glasses, yet those dark lenses were visible. The hairs were perfectly organized with the help of gel. He wore a simple coal grey shirt.
The boy: Ms. Suman Tiwari?
The boy (obv uk who he is): Hello. I’m Raj Mehta
Suman: Suman….Suman Tiwari
Raj: Or pre-Mrs. Mehta? *Winks*
Suman *pissed* on her mind: Oh god!!! Sooo flirty. Chappal feku kya? Nahi nahi Sumo control urself. K so nanu ko kya bolu? Ladka bohat flirt kadta hai. Nanu ko toh flirt ka matlab bhai nahi pata hoga. Aur upne hone wale biwi se flirt karna jayas hai. Sumo….look for flaws…
Raj: Kaha kho gaye? Chaiye andar chalet hai.
They seat on the special ‘love-birds’ corner right next to the big indoor fountain. On the back was a clean glass displaying the outside street.
Raj: So pahle food order karte hai uske baad baat karte hai?
Suman nods. Suddenly she felt she saw him standing outside through the glass. She turned her head around but Raj interrupted by asking her for her fav dish.
Suman: Kuchbhi. I’m okay with everything.
Raj: Prawn Spaghetti? Extra Spicy Thai soup with thick mushrooms? That’s for appetizer. Dinner baad me order karungi okay?
Suman nodded. She was clueless abt this dishes. She wanted to have Panir Tikka, chicken tandoori, or in one word-desi food. But now she had to look out. She made a clear glace outside and so no one. She couldn’t believe it. She was sure it was him. Maybe it was her heart which wanted him.
Suman *mumbles*: Shravan….
Raj: Kuch kaha?
Raj: So Suman ji, up upne bademe bataiye
Suman: Mere bareme kya?
Raj: Like ur passion, hobbies, life-style, anything u want me to know.
Suman: (on her mind: Better u know nth abt me) *bends a smile* I….I am an simple girl. Mujhe mahengi, branded, designer cheezo ki adaat nahi hai. Mera life style bhi bohat simple nd normal hai. I am…ordinary
Raj: That’s wht I like abt u. *Suman gives a horrifying look* Tumhe pata hai ajkal ki ladki saab bohat advance hai. Job kadti hai. Boyfriends hai. Ekdin mai break-up, ekdin mai patch up. Simple ladki to impossible hai, aur single….sanpome bhi nahi. So tumhara koi bf hai? Or tha?
Suman: No..no. I’m single. FOREVER. I believe in one prince charming *thinks of Shravan and smiles*
Raj: Nice….kuch fairy-tale type ki ho. Waise tumhari dost o ke bademe batao. Who ladkia toh zaroor fashion queen hogi. Tum unsaab se kaise deal kadte to?
Suman: Actually mera sirf do dost hai. Aur yoh dono…childhood friends…ek best friend *gulps* (uk who he is) aur dustra partner in crime (Pushkar) Woh dono mujhe fairy-tale type toh bilkul nahi kahte. To them I’m Su…
Suddenly a warm rough voice, yet very known to her said “Sumo…”
